The U.S. Bureau of Mines has undertaken studies of the disposal of mining and milling wastes in the marine environment. The Bureau's Alaska Field Operations Center, Juneau, initiated a review of the technology, regulations, and economic aspects of submarine tailings disposal (std). Because the review indicated the need for organization of literature on the subject, the Bureau compiled this extensive bibliography on marine disposal of mill tailings. The bibliography presented here contains 1,483 references and is also available through diskette in the wordperfect format. A review of the references indicates that literature on submarine disposal inadequately covers the subject. The majority of the references listed only peripherally relate to the subject. Published literature on the engineering and environmental aspects of std is severely limited.
